Literary works have some great implications for the readers. They project upon the minds of the readers their intended meanings and condole their anguishes respectively. This article has tried to attribute, pinpoint, and find the application and exemplification of the theme of sanctity in the novel To Kill a Mocking Bird. Through content analysis of the novel and via the general mode of presentation of the course of novel, this research has tried to deal with the survey of the theme of saintliness in the novel and, if any, its projection to similar concepts at postmodernism era. The paper through the text extracts as well as their projection upon common and tangible concepts at postmodernism has presented some interesting manifestation of sacred phenomena like a mocking bird which have been framed by author’s special selection of characters and settings. It has detected the idea of sacredness and its expansion and attribution to other things and persons in detail which would prove fascinating for the readers and researchers.
